  1. HPV DNA load: categorised as ≤ 0 = negative. 0 < VL ≤ 105 HPV copies = low viral load. >105 HPV copies = high viral load.
  2. *HR-HPV: high risk-human papillomavirus, infection by at least one high-risk viral type from the 6 analysed here.
  3. HPV: human papillomavirus; CIN: cervical intraepithelial neoplasia; p = p value.
